Call for help: -lkse (libkse trouble)

I fixed this some days ago, edited the makefile @ usr src lib libpthread
and changed LIB=pthread to LIB=kse , then make all install.

Perhaps I ran into this problem because I installed from a 5.2.1 cd (5.3
over NFS) and did a minimal install.

Hope this helps someone in the future with this fishy problem..
